Maria Antonietta Mameli's reductionist work unites photography's most essential components: light, form, and neutralizing time. By minimizing the compositional elements within her images, Mameli not only calls attention to the temporal beauty of her anonymous subjects, but the simplicity of the medium as well. Mameli isolates the artistry of life's minutiae and our comprehension of it. Her most recent work, Human Observations - Grand Central Station Continued, is a conceptual extension of the previous Grand Central Series. The artist has been singled out with critical praise for the innovative visual language she created to express her aesthetic vision.
Maria Antonietta Mameli was born in 1969 in Cagliari, Italy. A self-taught artist, Mameli is represented exclusively by Bruce Silverstein and has had two solo shows with the gallery in New York and one solo show with the gallery at Pulse, Miami.
Since the late 2000s, Mameli’s work has been the subject of exhibitions at prominent venues internationally including a solo show at the Museum Marino Marini in Florence, Italy; Paris Photo, France; Art Basel, Basel and Miami; the Armory Show, New York. Her work is included in numerous public and private collections worldwide. Mameli lives and works in New York City.
